In December we did the KS2 sample grammar punctuation & spelling English tests 2016 for our end of term test. Unfortunately the children all went down from the 2 previous tests - some by 43 marks! Loads in the -20 and -30 range too. Has anyone else trialed these and what did you think? Do 11 year-old's really need to know what past progressive or what a verb's subjunctive form is? At lunchtime today the staff were trying to get their heads round the harder ones before we helped the kids do their corrections. HELP.
